No Extra Toronto Shows - Strange

Wow I'm kinda shocked to see that Toronto didn't get an extra pair of shows. It's always been a U2 hotbed as last time the ACC there were 4 shows.

Even on u2.com Toronto is marked as "sold out".

Perhaps they'll announce more later. There's certainly room in the calendar for more...

Maybe they're punishing us for not grabbing up all the $300 nosebleeds yesterday

not really. what is total crap is that they they say both concerts have not many left. that is a complete fabrication. as of about 4:30 pm Eastern, there were several hundred in the upper level middle sections. then i guess all the people of Toronto got home from work and decided to buy U2 tickets in the rafters for 300 each since now there are not many there...

what a joke.

it does not surprise me that they have not added another show. people are not prepared to pay to see U2 in this city.

unless U2 missed the memo....

Canadians’ debt at ‘unsustainable’ level to keep pace with home prices: Fitch - The Globe and Mail

and it is the holiday season. honestly, 300 hundred.

to avoid egg on their face, someone made all those empty seats disappear.

I don't blame Torontonians one bit for not paying those prices. Buffalo/Cleveland/Detroit are towns that would normally buy up tickets and take a road trip, but are blue collar and can't afford it. I'm a diehard fan but would've skipped it this time around if I had to fork over $600 (300 each for myself and a gf who is luke warm about this sort of thing).

good point. never even thought about that impact also. but you're completely bang on. if they could not sell out 2 shows, NO chance of selling a third at the same price and 100% certain they don't sell out a 4th.

But obviously people in those other markets have no issue with paying $300 for shitty seats or there wouldn't be more shows announced.

What's strange for TO is that it's a huge big money city and we're only getting two shows. Toronto is no small market town.

Toronto is a big money town, but it's concentrated among a small (and shrinking) part of the population. It also thinks it's a very cool city now, and cool people don't like U2.

That's because Toronto crowds are dead compared to vibrant concert cities like Montreal, Chicago etc... especially Montreal. I live in Ontario and shows in TO don't even compare to the energy of MTL.

But that has absolutely zero bearing on why there weren't two more shows added. It's strictly about $$$ and obviously in TO people aren't willing to jump all over $300 (and $625) tickets.

The only thing that matters is sales, and im still pulling up tickets for both shows. That's why there's no 3rd and 4th

apparently sales are so brisk today for U2 at TO1, they had to turn the map off.

funny, apparently despite earlier this morning them showing minimal seating in the middles upper deck TO1, all of sudden, TM turns the map off for TO2 and then voila, i pull, in less than 2 minutes, sets of 4 in s. 308, row 9, 322, r 6, 320, r10, 322, r11, 310, r6....sold out. fuck off LN and TM.
